Death in Gaza

Re "Desolation in Gaza" (Page A1, July 22): Gaza City has now joined a famous but sadly tragic list of communities, large and small, whose fame derives all or in good part from humanity's willingness to accept hatred and revenge directed at our fellow humans: London, Dresden, Hiroshima, My Lai and Gaza City.

How much longer will the list have to grow before we awaken with revulsion to the growing capacity for our own self-destruction? Where is Picasso, now that the civilized world needs him once again to reveal us to ourselves?
